Sweet, sweet curiosity.

This blog is all about things I have made. You can find intense embroidery, paper quilling mania, crazy gingerbread houses, masks, puppets, steampunk clothes, ornaments, wackiness and sculptures on this site. So have fun and check it out!

Puppet heads! the line of Banquo..

Here are a series of puppet heads, I did rather quickly but they are really quite fun for teaching purposes. These are based on the kings referred to by the witches in Macbeth, where he is shown the line of heirs that will be king. These are my kings...

I will be helped by students to make crowns and capes and scepters, but I am still working on their bodies... which will come soon..

I sculpted them on top of Dollar store skulls with celluclay. Which is both an aggravating and interesting medium to work in.  It's like sculpting with tuna. So these are my tuna heads.

yet still, more masks! El Dottore..

I am not going to lie, this is my favourite character to wear. The minute you seem him in your reflection, you just want to act like an idiot, a bumbling fool.  Super duper fun.  He is the Doctor, obviously, but he isn't very good, and he will probably give you a bad diagnosis, while tripping into the room...

More Masks! Brighella...

Brighella is another Commedia Character I have been working on.  They are the cousin to Arlechinno, but a little more dumb and can be a little mean spirited and selfish. They can also be a bit of a coward...

Masks! El Capitano and Pulcinella



These masks are for my friend Duncan, he is using them to teach mask work in schools. These were a hoot to make and by creating them I have added several more characters to my Commedia mask Collection.
